What are “FREE RADICALS”?
When weak bonds split, “FREE RADICALS” are formed. They are unstable and react quickly with other compounds trying to capture the needed electron to gain stability. Some “FREE RADICALS” arise normally through the metabolism, environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides. FREE RADICAL damage accumulates with age
What is Argireline?
This is a patented peptide and goes by the scientific name of acetyl hexapeptide-8, or acetyl hexapeptide-3. Argireline has proven to inhibit two internal processes that strongly contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
1. The snare complex – The natural formation of proteins in aging skin that stimulate neurotransmitters provoking facial muscle contractions, thereby causing wrinkles and lines.
2. The over-production and release of catecholamines/hormones, such as adrenaline, which affect the sympathetic nervous system and cause wrinkles through repetitive facial movement. Argireline reduces the depth of wrinkles, especially in the forehead, eyes, and mouth area where most “crow’s feet” and deep lines are located. Hailed as the new BOTOX without the shots and frightening and potentially paralyzing side effects of botulinum toxin A.
What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Also known as “Thioctic Acid”, joined the ranks of Alpha Lipoic Vitamin Acid C & E; is an ideal metabolic neutralizer because it is both fatty and watery. Also it is the first defense against “FREE RADICALS”. ALA plays an important role in the synergism of anti-oxidants called the “Anti-Oxidant Network”. It directly recycles and extends the metabolic life spans of vitamin C, glutathione, and COQ10. It also indirectly renews vitamin E.
Why use COQ10 – Bilberry – Grape Seed Extract?
COQ10 is an Anti-Oxidant and neutralizes FREE RADICALS. COQ10 has the ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules and because it is small it can penetrate deeper into the skin cells.
BILBERRY contains polyphenols, which act as Anti-Oxidants to protect cells and body damage against the damage caused by “FREE RADICALS”. Bilberry flavonoids have special effects on both the blood vessels and blood cells. For this reason this highly powerful Anti-Oxidant is combined in RADIUS LIFE NU-BIRTH enabling your fragile capillaries to stretch and increase blood flow.
GRAPE SEED EXTRACT is thought to be 20 times more potent than vitamin C and 50 times stronger than vitamin E. It also contains a polyphenol called resverstral, which is a molecule that comes from plants and binds to proteins in our cells that combats diseases of aging. Resveratral activates a gene called SERT-1, which is an anti-aging gene.
Why Use Jojoba Seed Oil?
Jojoba seed oil acts as a moisturizer and an emullant to improve the skin’s elasticity.
